Mt Seymour has been working day and night to prep the park for the YLGRC09 on February 21st. “We are currently busting our butts rebuilding the park. We tore everything out and are starting from the ground up, We will have our staircase feature at the top into a step down jump with two takeoffs into a large stepover jump with 2-3 takeoffs then into two rail features. There will also be a line down skier’s right that will be littered with rails.” says Mark Williams, Terrain Park Supervisor of Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd. “ We have been putting in some serious hours to make sure we give you the best course we can”.
